A MESSAGE FROM PRINCIPAL CAMPOLONGO
MAP TESTING-MIDDLE SCHOOL
During the weeks of October 18-22 and October 25-29, middle school students will participate in MAP testing. MAP, or the Measure of Academic Progress, is a computerized adaptive test which helps teachers, parents, and administrators improve learning for all students.
The students are taking three tests; one in reading, one in math, and one in science. The tests are untimed, but each test session generally takes one hour to complete. If a student needs more time, more time will be provided. The amount of time spent testing is greatly decreased using these computerized tests, and we will be able to access results almost immediately to be able to better serve our students and families.
If you have any questions about MAP testing, feel free to contact me.

- If an individual has symptoms at the time they are designated as a close contact or within the 5 days following initial exposure, they follow the protocol for symptomatic individuals (PROTOCOL C).
- If an individual tests positive at any time, they follow the protocol for individuals who test positive for COVID-19 (PROTOCOL A).
- For all those exposed, best practice would also include an antigen or PCR test for COVID-19 at day 5 after exposure. An antigen test may be self-administered and does not need to be proctored or performed by a healthcare professional.

- Have improvement in symptoms
- Have been without a fever for at least 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medications.
- If the symptomatic individual was a close contact who is not exempt from testing and quarantine response protocols, after symptoms resolve and they receive a negative PCR test, they should follow Protocol B.

It is important that your child is on time so they do not get behind in their learning.
When your child is late, it is a disruption to the class.
Please be mindful to drop-off and pick-up your child at the scheduled times.
The PVCA dress code, or standard of dress, is posted on the website under the parents tab. Please review the dress code to be sure your son or daughter is following it.
Common dress code violations are:
wearing shirts that are not polos such as t-shirts
wearing sweatshirts and hoodies with words or images
wearing shorts, dresses, or skirts that do not follow the fit requirements
Shorts and skirts must be no shorter than three inches above the middle of the knee for the purposes of modesty and ease at play times.
Leggings are also not allowed unless they are being worn for warmth underneath a skirt or dress.
Sneakers are required on gym days or the student will not be permitted to participate in gym class activities.
